I've been on the hunt for a new pair of headphones for a while now. I've been using the simple Apple ones that come with an ipod and they've been okay. Recently the wire has been starting to fall apart and the speakers getting crackly with the rubber on the edges fraying.
I did some very brief research (READ: window shopping) and decided I had no idea what I was really looking for. I've glanced at the Yurbuds in the stores but thought they were a little too pricey to impulse buy.
Cue the BIRTHDAY! Apparently I have a BF who listens really well and is into technology enough to actually do legit research. #winning (sorry, had to). Anyways..

They have a twist lock type mechanism that keeps them tight in your ears. You put them in your ear at an angle and then twist them into place. You can yank downward on the cord and they don't budge.. seriously.
When I first opened them I tried jogging in place and whipping my head around among other things. I looked like a fool but they passed my initial tests.
They also come with a larger size "bud" to switch if you happen to have bigger ears. The packaging says that if you have further fitting problems you can take a picture of your ear next to a quarter and they will send you a special fit. Sweet.
The Yurbuds also claim to be sweat proof which is awesome in and of itself. I think my incredibly salty sweat has been the downfall of MANY pairs of headphones. Only time will really tell on this one. But I'm confident in them.

So if you are indeed in the market for headphones I highly recommend the Yurbuds Inspire Pro. Highly.
